Have prepared 40 Gladue reports which are pre-sentencing reports for Indigenous offenders that look at restorative alternatives to incarceration.

As a skilled mediator, facilitator and program developer, I help people identify their needs and the process that will best fit the situation.

I have eight years experience as a mediator in facilitating conversations between people who are in conflict.  I do this in small claims court, with divorcing and separating parents and between farmers and their debtors.  I have done other types of mediation including resource company/landowner, estate, eldercare, union/employer and parent/teen.

I set up a restorative justice program on several First Nations with the Lesser Slave Lake Indian Regional Council.  This included facilitating monthly volunteer engagement meetings with everything from conceptual content to role plays.  I have worked intensely with people in restorative processes on First Nations for several years.  I did a strategic planning session with the Nihiyaw Weyesowewin (Cree way of giving direction) Program on the Bigstone Cree Nation.
